    Is it better to create this interesting component in JAVA or VB???


    1. I have a text file (saila.txt) which contains some document in
    "lowercase".
    2. When I open a Word application and select the file (saila.txt), I want
    to view the contents of the text file (saila.txt) to be in "UPPERCASE".

    3. I want to create a component that will do the conversion from lowercase
    to UPPERCASE just before the file content is loaded.

    If you want my two cents... I would implement it in VB, so you can compile
    it down to native code. You'll get better performance, especially with string
    manipulations... I would personally prefer to implement it in C++, but I
    think VB would be better than Java in this case.

    Since you have already decided you want to use (Microsoft) Word, your best
    course of action is to write a Word macro to upper-case the text as it is
    loaded.

    However, if you had stated your problem differently, e.g.

    1. I have a text file (saila.txt) which contains some document in
    "lowercase".
    2. I want to view the contents of the text file (saila.txt) to be in
    "UPPERCASE".
    3. I want to create a component that will do the conversion from lowercase
    to UPPERCASE just before the file content is loaded.

    Then you would have a meaningful question.
